Tom Cruise, Jerry Bruckheimer look to cook ‘Top Gun II’ The sun may have set on Tom Cruise’s “Knight and Day” at the box office. Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Prince of Persia” was assassinated at theaters, but put Cruise and Bruckheimer together and what do you get?

“Top Gun II.”

Translation: Global box office resurrection for both creatives after their bombs this summer.

That’s right, the British press and MTV news have been buzzing that there’s a “Top Gun” sequel in the works.

Cruise would reprise his role as Lt. Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell. An insider tells the Sun: “The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor – and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilot.”

“We tried to develop [a sequel] and we couldn’t do it– I was with my partner Don Simpson,” Bruckheimer tells MTV News,
“And then Tom took it over and he tried to develop something and it never quite happened.”

“We were recently approached again to start talking about it but, you know, nothing yet,” Bruckheimer adds. “We kicked around some ideas because the aviation community has completely changed since we made the movie a long time ago. So we have to find a way in and how to incorporate the Maverick character into it.”

The first “Top Gun” was released in the summer of 1986 and went on to earn $354 million worldwide.

Already Bruckheimer’s next production, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” is earning low tracking scores.

    Hahahaha, they’ve got to be kidding! If Cruise is involved in the script, the enemy is going to be evil psychiatrists in Mig fighters or some other stupid Scientology inspired stupidity. Besides, he is going to be at least 50 when this movie gets out. What poor 20-something is he going “tame” this time around?
